From its humble origins over a century ago to its present day glory, the Tour de France has always been a race that has inspired fascination. The exploits of the riders - Tommy Simpson's death of the slopes of Mont Ventoux, Lance Armstrong's controversial career and Bradley Wiggins' historic win - continue to enthral audiences worldwide. With unequalled access to the race's archives and a chronological approach building to the present day, this beautifully illustrated book commemorates the 100th race in style. The rivalries, passion and drama of the world's greatest cycling challenge are revealed through entertaining and authoritative commentary and breathtaking official photography. Featuring unique race content, route maps, profiles of key riders and a section dedicated to the vital statistics of every race, Tour de France is the definitive account of this historic event.
